MIDDLE SCHOOL TEACHER | LANGUAGE ARTS
I am proud to be a member of the Cedar Hill Prep community. My first impression of Cedar Hill Prep left me feeling enthusiastic and energized. I knew this was a place where children are thriving as they develop the lifelong learning skills that will help them make a difference in our world.
Prior to joining the Cedar Hill Prep Faculty, I taught at Saint James School and Sundance. Since 2007, I have been a Middle School Teacher, working with grades 5 through 8 in Language Arts.
My academic background includes a Bachelor’s Degree from Centenary College. I completed my teaching certification through Jersey City University.
I love working with children and watching the world change with them and around them. I believe all children can make a difference and that it is our job as fellow human beings to give them what they need to discover, succeed, and contribute to society. I strive to be patient and allow children to make their own paths as they grow along the journey.

The Multiple Advantages of a Multilingual CurriculumThere have been a number of studies in recent years that suggest people who speak more than one language are in fact more intelligent. An article written by the New York Times highlights that learning multiple languages could improve cognitive skills beyond those related to language, which is a considerably different viewpoint than previously thought.
